VisionTek Introduces High Power USB Charging Hubs For Macs, PCs, iPads, iPhones, Android and Other USB Chargeable Devices

Three models starting at $19.99 MSRP feature up to seven ports with up to 2.4 Amps of power to charge multiple devices as fast as the factory power adapter.

September 30, 2014, East Dundee, IL – VisionTek Products LLC, (VisionTek®), a leading manufacturer of award-winning, high-performance upgrades and accessories for PCs and Macs®, today announced its new line of high power USB charging hubs that enable charging up to seven Apple® iPad®, iPhone®, Android™ and Windows® tablets, and other USB chargeable mobile devices as fast as the factory power adapter.

Three Solutions That Solve Charging Wait Dilemma

The use of multiple mobile devices such as smartphones, tablet computers, and eReaders by families and small business, health care, and restaurant operations is a common daily occurrence. Unfortunately, power adapters for devices can get lost and wall outlets can only charge two devices simultaneously. Typical charging hubs don't offer enough ports and/or enough power per port so extra time is spent waiting for a full charge or worse, only getting a partial charge.


VisionTek solves the charging wait dilemma with three unique, high-power charging solutions:

 

  • VisionTek High Power USB Four Port Charging Hub $19.99: Featuring a built-in power adapter, the Four Port Charging Hub eliminates the "wall wart" common with electronic devices. Just plug the power cord into a wall outlet to utilize the three 1 amp ports for charging small mobile devices like iPods® and iPhones, and one 2.1 amp port for charging iPads, tablet computers and smartphones that require higher amperage power charging. The Four Port Charging Hub can also be used to power USB interface equipped devices like wireless printers, mice, speakers, and WiFi adapters.
  • VisionTek High Power USB Seven Port Charging Hub $49.99: Ideal for "road warriors" and traveling families for when power outlets are limited, the Seven Port Charging Hub offers four 1 amp ports for charging media players and smartphones and three 2.4 amp ports for computers and smartphones that require higher amperage power charging. No computer connection is required and the lightweight, anodized aluminum housing design provides rugged portability while also complementing any desktop workspace.
  • VisionTek Charge & Sync USB 3.0 Seven Port Hub $54.99: The multi-purpose powered hub that offers a Plug and Play solution for charging and syncing needs. It adds four USB 3.0 ports with 5Gb/s (600MB/s) SuperSpeed data transfer connectivity and 900mA bus power to Macs and PCs with limited USB ports. Use it to charge/power and/or transfer data with digital cameras, external hard drives, flash drives, and printers. For fast connection status verification, amber colored LED's indicate when each USB 3.0 port is in use. In addition to being a USB 3.0 powered hub, the VisionTek Charge & Sync Hub also offers two 1 amp ports for charging small mobile devices and one 2 amp port for charging tablet computers.


All three high power USB hubs are available immediately directly from VisionTek, select e-tailers such as Newegg, Tiger Direct, and Dell; and national distributors such as Ingram Micro and D&H.

"While the VisionTek name has been synonymous with excellence in graphics cards for over two decades, we're expanding our product development efforts to other areas," said Mark Bilson, Executive Vice President of VisionTek. "When we see a need for a high-performance solution to solve a need or problem, we're going to leverage our experience and knowledge to deliver unique products such as this new charging hub line."

Save $600 On Two Versions of the World’s Fastest Graphics Card

Ultimate, at-any-cost performance enthusiasts have two savings choices on VisionTek’s version of the R9 295X2…widely acknowledged as the fastest graphics card on the market today.

 

  1. The reference design R9 295X2 is priced at $999.99 after the $600 discount is applied at checkout. This graphics card comes ready-to-run with a closed-loop cooling system.
  2. The VisionTek CryoVenom 295X2 priced at $1,150.00 after the $600 discount is applied at checkout. The CryoVenom 295X2 is superior to the factory 295X2 because it’s a single slot design which frees up a PCIe slot and provides better air flow for cooling running temperatures. Because the CryoVenom pump and reservoir fit into a standard drive bay, placement challenges of the stock radiator and short length tubing are eliminated. Lastly, the GPU, VRM, and memory on a CryoVenom 295X2 are cooled for longer, more reliable uselife. The stock 295X2 cooling system only cools the GPU. A CyroVenom Cooling Kit or other open loop cooling system is required for operation.

VisionTek Introduces Radeon R9 285 Graphics Card

New $249.99 MSRP high-performance card outperforms NVIDIA GTX 760 while offering Mantle and DirectX 12 support, 4K Ultra HD support, and realistic audio via AMD TrueAudio Technology

September 2, 2014, East Dundee, IL – VisionTek Products LLC, (VisionTek®), a leading manufacturer of award-winning, high-performance upgrades and accessories for PCs and Macs®, today announced the VisionTek Radeon™ R9 285 graphics card. The new, best-in-class card features up to 945MHz clock speed, 2GB GDDR5 RAM, support for 4K Ultra HD 4K gaming, realistic audio, and 3DMark® Fire Strike scores that beat the NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX™ 760.

 

Designed For Serious PC Gamers
Specifically designed to enable PC gamers to play the most demanding games at maximum detail better than any card in its class, the VisionTek Radeon R9 285 is loaded with the latest technology advancements in Graphics Core Next Architecture, including AMD Eyefinity™ Technology, DirectX® 12, and Mantle support.

 

Best-in-Class: Outperforms GTX 760
To compare the VisionTek Radeon R9 285 to the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760, 3DMark Fire Strike, the world’s most popular gaming benchmarking tool, was used to determine each card’s overall score in two demanding settings, Performance and Extreme. In both instances, the VisionTek Radeon R9 285 significantly outperformed the competition1:

 

3DMark Fire Strike Performance Setting Overall Score:

  • R9 285: 7066
  • GeForce GTX 760: 5650

 

3DMark Fire Strike Extreme Setting Overall Score:

  • R9 285: 3513
  • GeForce GTX 760: 2774

VisionTek Adds New Models, Cooling Kits, and Bundles to High-Performance Liquid Cooled CryoVenom Graphics Card Line

Complete solutions starting at $299.99 feature a custom single 5.25″ drive bay installable combination pump/reservoir, best-in-class radiator cooling capacity, and warranty-backed overclocked performance gains.

New CryoVenom 295X2 makes world’s fastest graphics card run cooler and install easier with minimal cost compared to reference design cards.

July 28, 2014, East Dundee, IL – VisionTek Products LLC (VisionTek®), a leading manufacturer of award-winning, high-performance upgrades and accessories for PCs and Macs®, today announced the addition of new graphics cards models, complete cooling kits, and card/cooling kit bundles to its high-performance liquid cooled PC compatible CryoVenom™ line.

Complete Kits Solve Four Major Liquid Cooling Concerns

To complement the CryoVenom R9 290 liquid cooled graphics card, the “quietest, coolest, and fastest” single AMD® GPU ever tested by PC Magazine, and Finalist in the Best New Product – Computer Hardware category of The 2014 American Business AwardsSM, CryoVenom Liquid Cooling Kits were developed in conjunction with EKWB to solve four major concerns of those considering liquid cooling:

  1. Warranty. Modifications can void the warranty of a standard GPU. With a CryoVenom Liquid Cooling Kit, a system builder can still design and build a custom machine, yet enjoy the protection of a VisionTek warranty.
  2. Compatibility. Designed as a complete solution versus separately sourced components, certified-for-use kits are available for the VisionTek R9 290, 290X, and 295X2 graphics cards.
  3. Real World Use Tested. All components have been tested in actual use by the VisionTek Custom Shop team to ensure effective, high-performance liquid cooling.
  4. Ease of Installation. Everything is included - including pre-test and appearance convenience items – and were specifically designed to facilitate a quick, hassle-free install.

Kits Feature Custom Drive Bay Installable Integrated Pump/Reservoir

At the heart of every CryoVenom Liquid Cooling Kit is a custom single 5.25” drive bay installable integrated pump/reservoir. This unique, two-in-one design eliminates the hassle of component sourcing and determining where to install them, as well as enables installation in a space limited chassis. The one-piece, industrial component quality pump/reservoir features an anti-vibration rubber mounting system for quiet operation, a 1000L/h high flow rate, and power management control of rotation speed through motherboard BIOS or a dedicated fan controller.

Improves Radeon R9 295X2 Functionality & Install Ease

While the Radon 295X2 reference design graphics card has been proclaimed by industry experts as the fastest and most powerful graphics card available on the market, AMD partner VisionTek once again found ways to make the best card even better.

 

In the stock closed cooling system configuration, the 295X2 uses two PCIe card slots and offers limited placement flexibility. By using a CryoVenom Liquid Cooling Kit, the 295X2 is transformed into a single slot card with better air flow for cooling running temperatures while now freeing up a PCIe slot. Because the CryoVenom pump and reservoir fit into a standard drive bay, placement challenges of the stock radiator and short length tubing are eliminated. Lastly, the GPU, VRM, and memory on a CryoVenom 295X2 are cooled for longer, more reliable uselife. The stock 295X2 cooling system only cools the GPU.

 

While market prices for the stock R9 295X2 range from $1500-$1950, the hand-built CryoVenom 295X2 is immediately available with a $1750 MSRP. Trying to build a comparable single slot, liquid cooled 295X2 would cost $1800-$2150 not including assembly time/effort, shipping time/cost, and likely would void the factory warranty. Complete CryoVenom 295X2 card and liquid cooling kit bundles are also immediately available starting at $2000 MSRP.

Card, Cooling Kit, and Combo Card/Kit Options for Any System Need

Whether a CryoVenom graphics card is add to an existing liquid cooled system, a CryoVenom liquid cooling kit is used with another brand of water block equipped graphics card, or a complete card and cooling kit bundle is desired, CryoVenom can be used to create the ultimate overclocked machine.
